Something Special and NASA

March 8, 2016 in FRC, Slideshow by Philip Wallis

This past Saturday, members of Texas Torque met at Something Special, a charity shop run by our local women’s shelter, to commemorate our continued partnership. After a group picture, we headed to the Robonauts’ lab at the Johnson Space Center to practice with other teams and make any necessary modifications to our robot.

Members of Texas Torque, the Robonauts, Spectrum, CRyptonite, and the AwtyBots met at NASA’s Johnson Space Center to prepare for upcoming competitions. All team members worked together to simulate matches, watch broadcasts of live matches, and prepare for competition. Many of us gained useful experience through these endeavors, and some of Texas Torque’s newer members had the chance to befriend members of other teams. We were able to make some useful additions to our robot and get valuable practice time on a full competition field with other robots.

We are very thankful for all the time and effort our fellow Houston area FRC teams put forth in coming together to practice, as well as 118 in particular for the Gracious Professionalism and Coopertition they displayed in inviting us over and allowing us to use their home field. We can’t wait to meet you on the battlefield, whether at Alamo, Utah, Lone Star, or beyond!
